Grilled Apple Salad


  • 1 cup pecan halves (toasted)
  • 4 Gala apples
  • 1 (6 ounce) package baby spinach
  • 1 (5 ounce) package spring mix
  • 3 ounces extra-sharp white cheddar cheese (shaved)
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • ⅔ cup canola oil
  • ⅓ cup Apple cider vinegar
  • 2 green onions, minced
  • 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • ½ teaspoon dried crushed red pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon salt


  1. Coat the grill with olive oil or cooking spray.

  2. Preheat the grill to a medium-high heat. Cut the apples crosswise into ¼-inch thick rings. Grill apple rings, covered with grill lid, 2–3 minutes on each side or until crisp-tender. Arrange the spinach, mixed greens on a plate and top with apples, cheese and toasted pecans. Season with salt and pepper and serve with the vinaigrette (whisk all ingredients until blended).
